In an increasingly secular age, what relevance do religious texts retain for philosophical thought? This public discussion brings together leading experts on philosophy and the Christian, Islamic, and Jewish traditions to explore the ongoing significance of canonical works for addressing perennial philosophical questions.
Panelists will discuss how returning to traditional texts may produce nuanced perspectives. The conversation will highlight the diversity within traditions, their evolution over time, and resonances across faiths. By examining the interface of tradition and reason, this event illuminates why religious texts remain vibrant philosophical resources.
